"New technology is turning me into an old crotchety bastard."

I tweeted that @betajames this morning.

Yes, that is a massive amount of irony.

Really, I should've written something along the lines of my distaste for social networking (more irony) and it's ever-growing implementation into our daily activities. Apple announced that in the next iTunes update they will be introducing Ping, a means to "Like" music you're listening to and follow artists to see what they "Like" (because we all wanted to know exactly what music continues to inspire Nickelback).

This piggybacks a commercial I saw last night advertising a television with Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube capabilities. T9 on a remote, anyone?

It really wouldn't surprise me if we get socially networked cars soon to tell everyone where we are going in real-time.

What about sharing your most recent Kindle reads?

Maybe Ping will be great, but I wonder why it is becoming that increasingly difficult to disconnect.

This Isn't Even My Face


It's a fist in my face. So why would you tag me on Facebook?

I Hate That Every Entry I Write Is About Fbook

But really, I have no place else to vent.

The following is the new way to alert people you're having marital problems.


You'd better believe I submitted that to Lamebook.

Child Leashes Are Old School

I've long been amused by the child leash. Call it a backpack all you want, make it into a cute thing, it's still strapped to the kid and parents can lead them around by it.

That always makes me chuckle. Maybe because it's such a departure from my upbringing of being able to roam free on a 100-acre camp. Or because my parents made darn sure I was well-behaved in public.

What brought this topic up was I came across a great issue of National Geographic that features the kid leash on the cover.

And when was that published?

June, 1961.

All I can say is...awesomesauce.

Being all productive and whatnot today,
Worm.
